Cassel’s is a relaxing and fun venue. The concerts are held on a beautiful grass lawn outside the winery, surrounded by the vineyards, horse pastures and beautiful country scenery. Their wines are outstanding. There is also barbecue sold at these concerts. Bring lawn chairs, picnic food (or buy dinner at the barbecue), and beverages (for those who do not drink wine).

My Music Marathon Last Saturday

May 6, 2014 | Posted in News | By

Last Saturday, May 3, I did back to back performances. It was an exhausting, but rewarding experience.
First, I played at the Linglestown Gathering Place to a small, but very attentive audience. Was hoping to play on their beautiful new deck, but the rain forced the show indoors. Thanks to Jay Mumper and company for the great hospitality!
And special thanks to my friend Charlie Crouse for being the stage crew for the day. Charlie helped me to quickly pack, transport and unpack for the second show. Thanks Charlie – Really appreciate your help and friendship!
Directly after the Gathering Place performance, we packed up and headed out to Ted’s Bar and Grill. At Ted’s, I spent the next 3 plus hours jamming with John Waite. I had a fantastic time(as always) performing with John. He is an outstanding guitarist and can pick up on any song – whether he is familiar with it or not! I think the crowd at Ted’s really enjoyed the show. Thanks for coming out and joining John! Hope we can do it again soon!
